Get some permaculture practice in Brighton

Just had this, permaculture is great, if you are based in Brighton it looks good.

Scrumping + other volunteering

Have you ever thought about volunteering for Brighton
Permaculture Trust? Why not join the team of people who
make Brighton Permaculture Trust the dynamic organisation
that it is? A friendly team of dedicated enthusiasts run
the organisation, much of the work being voluntary.

This week is our busiest in the year with lots of fruity
things happening, so if you can help out that would be great.

Our scrumping project collects fruit that would otherwise
not be harvested around the city. Many tons of fruit rot
on or under trees around the city while we import fruit
from the other side of the world and the scrumping project
is putting some of it to good use. Volunteers are needed to
pick and cook fruit. One of the perks is getting fruit to
take home.

This weekend and next week fruit is being picked and cooked
ready for apple day on Sunday 26th. Picking dates include
18th 19th and 21st. Cooking will take place 24th and 25th.
Help is needed at apple day on the 26th too. Some of this
is part of the scrumping project but fruit also comes from
the orchards at Stanmer Park which have been restored by
Brighton Permaculture Trust and the Stanmer Orchard Group.

Other volunteering opportunities for involvement include
helping out at course or events and hands-on practical work
at Stanmer or in schools.

Please contact us via our website if you would like
to be added to our volunteer mailing list to hear about
these and other volunteering opportunities:
